AMANTE: An Alchemical Dye Session (Workshop)

AMANTE: An Alchemical Dye Session (Workshop)

AMANTE: An Alchemical Dye Session (Workshop) at Lady Luck Flower Farm

Please follow the link above to view a full description of the workshop and to purchase tickets!

In this two-day workshop, we will explore our connection to the world of plants through intuitive dyeing. This practice interrupts routine,  embraces irregularity, and deepens our relationship to the natural world by creating personal rituals for self-care.

A relationship with nature has the power to balance our physical, mental, and spiritual being. The layers we intertwine into our worlds should be infused with healing intentions, strength, and love. There is luxury and enchantment in an aged object that emerged from a bath of incantations through the long layered natural dye process. This is pure magic, full of spirit essences, wild elements, and plants. I hope you will find harmony in our process and nourish your desire to integrate it into your daily practices.

Arone Dyer's Drone Choir (Performance)

Arone Dyer's Drone Choir (Performance)

Dronechoir SYLLABA-Asheville, 17, Revolve Gallery Asheville, NC, June 6th, 2018. This performance featured Choreographer Coco Nuco with dancers Claire Duncombe, Katie Richter, Jazmin Rogers and Lavender Blue, who all sang alongside Isabel CastellviMadelyn Ilana, Sol, CaroMia TillerDominique Warfield, Arone DyerStephanie MorganKatie RichterCharity CimarronLiz LangIsabelle CelesteGrace EngelJulia Christgau. None of these performers were familiar with the piece prior to the performance. 

As director, composer, curator and performer, Arone Dyer's aim for Dronechoir is to present beautiful musical experiences that provide deeper connections between women of different cultures and communities.

Dronechoir performances require no fewer than four female vocalists of various ethnic backgrounds and musical interests who perform an unrehearsed piece that Dyer composed. Each singer is given musical and movement cues through earphones.

Although the base composition of the piece is a constant, Dronechoir continuously reshapes itself through space-specific movement directions that are fed to generous, adventurous vocalists of diverse backgrounds whose voices vary in volume, range and timbre — which is where the movement directions come into play, physically foregrounding specific singers at different points in the piece.
